FEATURED MOVIE: duct tape invitational

{ THE DOCUMENTARY } Sponsered by Vans US Open 2013

Joel and I have been friends ever since I can remember. Even though he is 7 years older than me, he has always treated me cool and as a peer. When I was a little kid we started surfing WindanSea Surf Club contests together, and he even took me on one of my first surf trips to Scorpion Bay (it was amazing). Stoked Vans is producing a documentary on Joel because he is such an incredible talent is a very important figure in surfing. His style and approach is timeless and seamless on either a shortboard or longboard. How many people are world champions at two completely different popular sports?! Joel has been crowned the best at both longboarding, and jiu jitsu. Looking forward to the full feature – Ductumentary.

REAL ESTATE: DAYS REVIEW For a mix of songs made at different times, Real Estate’s self-titled 2009 debut was impressively consistent. Given how well the New Jersey band fused disparate moments, you had to figure they could reach even greater heights were they to craft their next set all at once. They did just that last winter, and the result is indeed a step forward. Cleaner, sharper, and just plain stronger, Days is like a single idea divided into simple statements-- a suite of subtle variations on a theme. Its coherence sounds remarkably effortless, as if stringing together catchy gems is as easy as, in the words of one song, “floating on an inner tube in the sun.” Interestingly, Real Estate actually acknowledge this sense of ease. The opener is bluntly titled

“Easy”, and references to carefree simplicity abound. As singer/guitarist Martin Courtney puts it, “If it takes all summer long/ Just to write one simple song/ There’s too much to focus on/ Clearly there is something wrong.” But the band’s celebration of the uncomplicated is less about how Days was written than about the beauty of life seen in retrospect, especially young life in small towns. Like the stirring scenes of suburban Texas in Terrence Malick’s The Tree of Life, these songs find meaning in daily mundanities-- in houses and gardens, phone lines and street lights, names carved in trees and leaves pressed by footsteps. “All those wasted miles/ All those aimless drives through green aisles,” sings Courtney wistfully.

“OUR CARELESS LIFESTYLE, IT WAS NOT SO UNWISE.”

“ALL THOSE AIMLESS DRIVES THROUGH GREEN AISLES”

WASHED OUT 12

“Our careless lifestyle, it was not so unwise.” That sentiment was evident on the band’s debut, but here they’ve honed it to its essence. The music bears a simplicity to match. These aren’t minimal songs by any means, but the layers of cycling guitar, rolling rhythm, and gentle echo are always understated, more about conveying feeling than showing off the band’s considerable chops. There’s also a smooth efficiency in these rich tunes. No note feels wasted, and nothing happens at the wrong time or in the wrong place. That idyllic tone permeates Days, and in lesser hands could deprive it of tension or variety. But Real Estate have such a knack for classic-sounding melody that every song quickly engages on a musical

gut level. It’s a quality their music shares with the jangly hooks of early R.E.M., the breeziness of later Pavement, and the garage twang of the Fresh & Onlys. But their closest kin are New Jersey forefathers the Feelies. That group’s undying ability to mine repeated chords and Zen phrases is matched best by the album’s closer, “All the Same”, a looping study of how night and day are merely sides of the same coin. Lasting over seven minutes, it might be Real Estate’s first epic. But it’s as subtle and unassuming as anything on Days-- more evidence from this band that great music doesn’t have to sound hard to make, even if it is.

{ THE EAST COAST } Devestation after hurricane sandy

The Restore The Shore Projects – PA Chapter has made an amazing and continuous effort since Sandy tore up our shoreline. On Saturday, February 16th they will be throwing an event to benefit Waves for Water at Kenny’s Spirited Eatery in Southampton, PA. Join us there for some music and food as we continue to unite & rebuild together!

Seaside, NJ after the tragic storm

We have attended several meetings in Monmouth County since the storm with a group which became known as My Brothers & I. A remarkable coalition of surfers and business owners have continued to meet under the guidance of Waves For Water and the results have been outstanding. Representatives from Southern NJ all the way up to Long Island, NY have taken the discussions and ideas home to be transformed into truly amazing, community action plans.

Jetty launches the Restore the Shore Project in an effort to unite local surfers to help bring their home back.

ALASKAN CONTINUES

A TRIP TO ALASKAN OUTBACK There was a time, before polypropylene and gore-tex, before X Games and Sandy Hill Pittman, when wilderness adventure was an esoteric pastime reserved for the few. A certain kind of social elite—the old-money kind—took delight in donning wool overshirts and half-rubber boots fashioned by Leon Leonwood Bean and stomping into the backcountry, shotgun or fishing rod in hand, to do battle with the elements. Or rather, not to do battle so much as gamely joust, as on a squash court. The world of old-school adventure still exists. But it’s not easy to find, and it’s still not open to everyone. To tap into this social stratum you need to have the right contacts, a certain amount of cash, and a lot of patience.

You also have to put up with a good deal of discomfort. At the moment, I’m sitting in the back of a two-seat Piper Super Cub as it roars along the rugged Alaskan coast, banking to avoid the fog-shrouded cliffs. I’m heading for the frayed end of civilization’s grid, a place of persistent drizzle, of insidious damp, of endless mud, and of temperatures better suited to keeping vegetables crisp than keeping tourists happy. Twenty feet below us, waves are churning into white water. We’re so low that I have to remind myself we’re not in some insanely fast speedboat, but a single-engine plane. It’s been an hour since we started heading south from King Salmon, a town of 350 on the northern end of

BELOW US, WAVES ARE CHURNING INTO WHITE WATER”

the Alaska Peninsula. Most of the flight has been over tundra, a table-flat land dotted with cymbal-shaped lakes and threaded with serpentine streams. When we reached the flanks of the Aleutian Range, a wall of rock draped in storm clouds, pilot Sam Egli began working his way in and out of the valleys, looking for a clear way through. Finally he made it over a pass, and dropped into a sunlit glen.
